VACAVILLE — A suitcase left unattended in front of a local business led to the evacuation of several nearby stores and the deployment of a local bomb squad detail early Tuesday afternoon.

Vacaville police dispatch received a call at 2:29 p.m. of an unattended suspicious suitcase in front of the Radio Shack, 2080 Harbison Drive. A person reported that no one had been seen around the suitcase for at least 30 minutes, according to a police press release.

Officers arrived and viewed the suitcase and found its size and location suspicious in nature, according to the release. Police said the parking lot and eight surrounding businesses were evacuated and cordoned off because of public safety concerns.

The Yolo County Bomb Squad was dispatched to the scene. During an investigation, police determined that the suitcase contained clothing and related items.

Radio Shack is situated in the Vacaville Commons Shopping Center, which contains Safeway, Pier 1 Imports and Target.

Anyone with information related to this case is asked to call Officer Brian Pro at 449-5200.
